    Hi All
    Because of neighbourhood restrictions,we are not allowed to put an aerial on the exterior of our house,but we can put one in the loft.

    Question;
    Does it matter which aerial I use ( cheapo Argos ) do I use cable for freeview or will the 75ohm brown stuff do the job?

    I think if I stood on the roof of our (Bungalow)I could see the winter hill transmitter,if that helps.

    Your recommendations would be appreciated.

    Thanks
    Alan

    When you say "neighbourhood restrictions", do you mean UK planning laws? If so, I'm surprised, as I thought there were no planning restrictions on aerials, but only on satellite dishes in conservation areas. It's worth making sure you have to use a loft aerial, as clearly a rooftop or other outdoor aerial would be preferable, especially if you want to receive Freeview diogital.

    The reason there are aerial restrictions is because we have a communal aerial system,which is less than useless,and needs a serious upgrade,which is'nt going to happen.

    As far as I am concerned,a loft aerial is better than no aerial.

    I want to put an LCD TV in the bedroom,but without an aerial,it won't be worth bothering.
    Regards
